Default Fuselage Kit Deliveries

Anyone have a ship date for their fuselage kit? If so how many weeks from the time of order? Van's website is currently showing 10-12 weeks, I'm wondering if that's what's actually happening.

My delivery was schedule for Sept. 29, but the first batch is now going to be mid Oct. as per Van's. I have not heard when the next batch is going to be ready.

Yes, I believe that the first batch should go pretty quickly once they start shipping. I know they have been putting the final touches on how to fit it all in a crate. That's the latest I have heard. Just don't know how many kits are included in that first production run. It can't get here soon enough, I've painted all the rooms in the house, the garage floor, replaced all the windows, trimmed all the bushes, I have banked about 5 years of honey dos while waiting. I know we will be happy once it arrives, but man has it been hard waiting.
